Officials said that the ground was still unstable and most rescue work was being carried out manually. Heavy machines were trying to clear mud that had cut access to the location.
There was no phone signal in the area, making coordinating rescuing efforts difficult, they added. Heavy rains triggered the landslide in the Karangkobar district of central Java.
